Oh I'll take the high road . . .

First of all - it's time to announce the winners of the Here Come the Grooms Contest, Sid the Cat, Mitch and Micah McAllister and - well whoever Liz Fielding gets to pick her winners - have all chosen a name and the winners are:

Nikos' winner - Mary Anne D from Michigan
Kal's winner - Alison L from Scotland
Christo's winner - Dena W from Washington
and the winners of course each receive copies of The Konstantos Marriage Demand, Loves Me, Loves Me Not (the RNA anthology) and One-Night Mistress . . .Convenient Wife.

I also ran an extra prize draw alongside the Here Come The Grooms Contest and the winner of that was Laurie B.
Congratulations to all the winners!

Special thanks go to Anne McAllister and Liz Fielding for joining in this special contest with me - we've had a lot of fun since we started the very first Here Come the Grooms Contest four years ago - here's to the next one!

So March 1st was St David's Day. Later in the month we'll have St Patrick's Day. And just to cover almost all parts of the British Isles, towards the end of March I'll be heading for Scotland.

I've never done any workshops/talks in Scotland before so this will be a new experience for me.

There are two events that have been organised by HI~Arts - Highland and Island Arts. And if anyone in Scotland is interested then the details are these:

1. Thursday 25th March 2010

Royal Highland Hotel, Inverness
7.30pm - 9.30pm

2. Saturday 27th March 2010
The MacPhail Centre, Ullapool.
2pm- 4pm

Both events will be seminars - part talk and (probably the most useful part of the seminar) a Q&A session

For further details and to book - please contact:

Today would have been my mother's birthday sadly, she's no longer here to celebrate with personally - so instead I'll celebrate with a special friend who shares Mother's date - and who lives in the city of Dublin where my mum grew up -

Happy Birthday Abby Green!
